SOCIETE GENERALE DE FINANCEMENT DU QUEBEC RECEIVES AN ENTRAIDE CAMPAIGN AWARD FOR THE SECOND STRAIGHT YEAR



    SGF receives another Philanthrope award for the amount donated per
    employee

    MONTREAL, Feb. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - The employees of Société générale de
financement du Québec (SGF) have received a Philanthrope award for the second
straight year in recognition of their generosity during the Entraide 2007
campaign. This annual fund-raising campaign for Québec-government employees
raises funds for Centraide/United Way, Partenairesanté-Québec and the Québec
Division of the Canadian Red Cross.
    The Entraide awards are presented to the organizations with the highest
donations per employee. SGF received the highest distinction, a Philanthrope,
in the category of organizations with fewer than 200 employees. The
Philanthrope trophy presented to SGF recognizes excellence in the volunteer
activities carried out by its employees.
    SGF's Entraide 2007 campaign took place from October 22 to 26, inclusive.
SGF employees organized and took part in various activities all week long. In
addition to the annual donation, initiatives such as an exhibit of photographs
taken by employees, the sale of a calendar featuring the winning photos, the
sale of home-made desserts and a pasta lunch sponsored by the Hôtel
Intercontinental Montréal enabled SGF to donate a total of $90,822 to the
Entraide 2006 campaign.
